The surname Tye was first found in Nottingham where they were known as the Barons Tyes and even before the Conquest were a family great significance in that shire and in the county of Rutland. However, one of the first records of the name was found much further to the south at Mousehole in Cornwall. " This place, which is also called Port Enys, is situated on the western shore of Mount's bay in the English Channel; and though at present only a large fishing-village, was formerly of considerable importance. In 1293, Henry de Tyes obtained for it the grant of a market on Tuesday, to which was afterwards added a fair on the festival of St. Barnabas." [1]

Spelling variations of this family name include: Tye, Tee, Tyes, Tigh and others.
